New York Giants Injury Report, Week 17: Osi Umenyiora, Hakeem Nicks Optimistic For Return

The New York Giants relayed some good news after practice on Thursday.

Though wide receiver Hakeem Nicks and defensive end Osi Umenyiora's practice status remained unchanged -- Nicks missed practice again and Umenyiora was limited for the second straight day -- both players are on track to participate on Sunday when the Giants meet the Dallas Cowboys for the NFC East title.

Nicks suffered a hamstring injury during the Giants' 29-14 victory against the New York Jets, but persevered through the injury and did not leave the game. He said he will play against the Cowboys.

Umenyiora suffered a badly sprained ankle on Nov. 28 against the New Orleans Saints and has not played since. He was a surprise participant in practice on Wednesday and should return to the lineup Sunday barring setback.

Tight end Jake Ballard (knee), running back Ahmad Bradshaw (foot) and linebacker Mark Herzlich (ankle) also missed practice. Wide receiver Mario Manningham (knee) was limited.
